Concord Theatre finds its home in CU's Communication Department. By using modified personal actor training as well as the Adler method, our students always have the opportunity to develop their own stage personality while honing their craft. Led by faculty with outstanding experience in the field, every student is given individual, undivided attention, receiving shared insight for acting as an art as well as a business.

It is Concord Theatre's belief that the best theatre experience is not only about the show, but about the networking and friendships made when the curtains fall. Between rehearsals, performances, and the theatre fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega, our students spend much quality time together. This quality time continues to attract new students into our family, creating an unbreakable bond between one another.

Theatre Curriculum

The core curriculum includes theatre, public speaking, and journalism for a wide diversity of job opportunities. A main stage play production is produced each semester. In addition to those two larger productions, smaller projects are often presented, giving students many opportunities for performance and technical experience. The entire campus community is encouraged to participate in all theatre production and stage roles and technical staff are not limited to theatre majors or minors.

Each area with the Communications Arts and Media Department offers a hands-on Workshop every semester. Workshop is a way for students to get specific, practical experience. The students in Theatre Workshop provide support to play productions and other projects within the Theatre Department. Students are required to have four semesters of Workshop to graduate, insuring that they earn hands-on experience in their field.
